Diversity Stories: Day Against Homophobia’s Composition

Stories and News No. 993

Composition: Describe your feelings and your thoughts on the International Day Against Homophobia.

Dear professor, well…
I don’t want to seem disrespectful, that's clear, especially not from the first lines, you know.

The fact is you put me in trouble, with this homework, since the subject itself.
I mean how it is written, you know.
I am aware that you will say that I use too many “you know’s”, pointing them in red...
You are right, but why don’t we remain on the spot, for once?
Let's leave the simple form and concentrate on the contents, the real meaning of things, it’s okay for you?
So let's start with homophobia.
According to Oxford Dictionary, it means dislike of or prejudice against homosexual people.
Well, now things change, right?
I would not disregard you, Professor, but in the light of the above explanations, we should start again.

Describe your feelings and your thoughts on the International Day against dislike of or prejudice versus homosexual people.

My dear Professor, you know… please, forgive yet another appearance of the words-that-not-must-be-repeated, but I have not yet completely overcome my problems.
Yes, because I still feel that we are on the surface, stuck to the common appearance of things.
I'm not the one who must remind you about it, my great teacher, but here we are talking about an international day, not a normal country party.
All right, I confess, great teacher is a clumsy attempt to earn your benevolence during the final exams, but I am human, professor, and therefore fallacious.
You’re not, that's clear, such a torch that illuminates the cave of my ignorance.
Okay, this time I've been a bit fussier than before, but follow me in reasoning and let out the useless details, the both of us.
Let’s focus our attention, for example, on the word that has led us on this sheet.
Homosexuals.
From Oxford Dictionary, it is said for who is
sexually attracted to people of one's own sex.
Sorry, professor, but we should update.

Describe your feelings and your thoughts on the International Day against dislike of or prejudice versus who is
sexually attracted to people of one's own sex.

Professor, I must confess that my perplexity has increased as we make it clear.
In short, with this homework you are asking me what I feel or think about those who, in the end, almost hate the whole human population, apart from the narrowest and not all, to be honest. And such an insane feeling has a definite name, it seems to me.
How could we really understand other people attraction? There is no scientific census of sexual attractions, which change constantly, let's say.
Until yesterday I detested the spinach, but you should know that I love it, right now. Have you ever tasted them with Parmesan cream on it? Sorry, I’m digressing too much.
Speaking of those who use to sleep with people of the same sex, here, the list is endless too.
I am aware we live in the era of modern espionage and the danger of being listened or watched at any time by computers and cell phones, but liking to observe the intimate interests of strangers has a name too, Prof, you should know better than me.
Not for age or personal reasons, let’s be clear!
I mean your immense culture, my Plato. And here the repairing currying was right, you should recognize that.
In conclusion, let’s rearrange for the last time, in this case by saying things as they are.

Describe your feelings and your thoughts on the International Day of voyeurs misanthropes.

Dear Professor, listen: why don’t we stop talking about homosexuals and let’s take care of the above mentioned once and for all, starting with the day dedicated to them?
